The m aterial included in the book is g radually presented and practised in 12 units (Units 1-4,6-9 and 11-14) and consolidated and revised in units 5,10 and 15. All 15 units include exercises w hich are in accordance w ith the FCE Exam ination and the ECCE form at, w hile the Final FCE and Final ECCE Tests provide students w ith fu rth e r practice and fam iliarise them fu lly w ith the C am bridge FCE Use of English Paper and the Gram m ar and Vocabulary sections of the ECCE. Each o f the units 1-4, 6-9 and 11-14 has been divid ed in to tw o sections. The firs t section m ainly focuses on gram m ar. Collocations, expressions, prepositional phrases, phrasal verbs and w ords w ith prepositions are presented and practised th ro ug h exercises. These exercises enable students to id e n tify the syntactic and sem antic features o f the item s introduced and see how they are used in m eaningful contexts. Appendices I and II alphabetically present all prepositional phrases and w ords w ith prepositions w hich are introduced in the book. In section 1 some gram m atical structures are also revised by means of a num ber of exercises. Although these exercises do not follow the exact exam ination form at, they practise sentence transform ation and te xt com pletion, thus preparing the ground fo r the corresponding parts of the FCE Use of English Paper and the ECCE Gram m ar section. Some basic rules are given in the form of ‘Points to Remember’ accom panied by illu strative examples w hich h ig h lig h t the co rrect gram m atical structures as well as some mistakes co m m only made by students. Finally, the m ost com m on sentence transform ations related to the gram m atical structures explained are presented.

This is follow ed by an exercise practising the patterns ta ught. A ppendix III presents all derivatives dealt w ith in the book + m ore in alphabetical order. The syllabus of the book includes all the m aterial that is com m only required fo r Paper 3 of the FCE Examination as well as fo r ECCE and other exams and should be mastered by students at this level. Despite its com prehensiveness, this book cannot be regarded as exhaustive, as it is possible th a t a few items not included in it may be set in fu tu re exam inations. Use of English B2 fo r the FCE Exam ination and other exam s has been s p e c ific a lly designed to be co m p le te d in a pp ro xim a tely fo rty -fiv e teaching hours, provided th a t some o f its parts are assigned as hom ew ork.

Tài Liệu Học Ngữ Pháp Tiếng Anh: Sách Use Of English – First Certificate Skills – Mark Harrison

Lời mở đầu

Theo Wikipedia, “Ngữ pháp tiếng Anh là cấu trúc về ngữ pháp trong tiếng Anh chỉ sự đặt câu đúng trật tự, đúng quan hệ và hài hòa giữa các từ, yếu tố để tạo nên một câu văn hoàn chỉnh, là quy phạm nhằm truyền đạt thông tin một cách chính xác, bài bản và khoa học nhất.” Nếu so sánh việc học tiếng Anh với việc xây một ngôi nhà, ngữ pháp tiếng Anh đóng vai trò là nền móng, thành phần mà nếu được xây dựng chắc chắn thì sẽ được vững bền hơn. 

Tuy nhiên, việc học ngữ pháp là một việc khá là khó khăn đối với đa số những người học ngoại ngữ bởi một số lượng lớn những quy tắc từ đơn giản đến phức tạp của tiếng Anh. Trong quá trình chinh phục ngữ pháp tiếng Anh, người học thường sẽ gặp những vấn đề như:

Không biết sẽ bắt đầu học ngữ pháp từ đâu. Có rất nhiều chủ điểm ngữ pháp người học cần phải nắm như: từ loại, loại từ, cấu trúc câu, thì, …

Không biết lượng kiến thức về ngữ pháp hiện tại của mình đang ở đâu bởi lượng kiến thức ngữ pháp tiếng Anh thì khá lớn cùng với sự không thường xuyên ôn luyện ngữ pháp của một số người học.

Không hiểu cốt lõi về lí do tại sao lại sử dụng điểm ngữ pháp này mà không sử dụng điểm ngữ pháp khác. Điều này về lâu dài sẽ ảnh hưởng không tốt tới quá trình học tiếng Anh của người học bởi khi đó người học không hiểu cốt lõi chỉ nắm chung chung về bề mặt.

Trong bài viết này tác giả sẽ giới thiệu cuốn sách Use of English – First Certificate skills – Mark Harrison với hi vọng sẽ phần nào giúp cho người học giải quyết hai khó khăn nêu trên. Tài liệu này vừa có thể được sử dụng trong lớp học với sự hướng dẫn của giáo viên, vừa có thể phục vụ cho quá trình tự học.

Tổng quan về Use of English – First Certificate skills – Mark Harrison

Đối tượng sử dụng sách

Người học và ôn thi cho kỳ thi FCE (First Certificate in English). Đây là chứng chỉ tiếng Anh tương đương với trình độ Trung cao cấp (B2) trên Khung Tham Chiếu Chung Châu Âu Về Ngôn Ngữ (CEFR-Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

Người học và ôn thi cho kỳ thi tiếng Anh khác với mong muôn ôn lại kiến thức hệ và hệ thống toàn bộ ngữ pháp tiếng Anh ở mức độ trung cấp – tương đương cấp độ B2 trong thang ngôn ngữ 6 bậc Châu Âu (CEFR).

Người học muốn tự ôn tập tổng quát các kiến thức về ngữ pháp.

Giáo viên có thể tham khảo cấu trúc của cuốn sách để đưa ra lộ trình học ngữ pháp và từ vựng phù hợp cho học viên cũng như rút trích các bài tập trong sách phù hợp với mục đích giảng dạy.

Cấu trúc cuốn sách

Trước khi bắt đầu bài học có phần “Stop and Check”, người học có nhiệm vụ kiểm tra những câu đã cho là đúng hay sai về mặt ngữ pháp. Tuy các câu hỏi đưa ra không quá thách thức nhưng vẫn yêu cầu người làm có sự hiểu biết nhất định về mục ngữ pháp đó. Vì vậy, bằng việc tự kiểm tra, người học có thể nhận biết được liệu mình đã có hiểu đầy đủ và rõ ràng về chủ điểm ngữ pháp đó hay chưa.

Phần lý thuyết được trình bày dưới dạng bảng, một nửa bên trái là lý thuyết và giải thích ngắn gọn, một nửa bên tay phải là các ví dụ để minh họa rõ ràng hơn.

Các chủ điểm của sách bao gồm:

Unit 1: The Present (Hiện tại)

Unit 2: The Past (Quá khứ)

Unit 3: The Future (Tương lai)

Unit 4: Linking words & phrases (Các từ và cụm từ nối)

Unit 5: Reported speech (Câu tường thuật)

Unit 6: Infinitives + V-ing form (Động từ ở thể thêm –ing)

Unit 7: Articles, determiners and pronouns (Mạo từ, từ hạn định và đại từ)

Unit 8: Modals (Động từ khiếm khuyết)

Unit 9: Conditionals (Câu điều kiện)

Unit 10: The passive (Câu bị động)

Unit 11: Relative clauses and participles (Mệnh đề quan hệ và phân từ)

Unit 12: Comparison and degree (So sánh và mức độ)

Đối với từ vựng, người học sẽ tiếp cận với các từ vựng thường được sử dụng với chủ điểm ấy.

Lịch thi thử IELTS (Paper-based) tháng này

Kinh nghiệm phòng thi rất quan trọng và thi thử là cách rất tốt để tích lũy kinh nghiệm. Đề thi IELTS tại ZIM rất sát đề thi thật, đánh giá trình độ chính xác, nhận kết quả ngay sau khi thi, và phần thưởng 1.000.000đ cho giải nhất ….

Ví dụ:

Cuối mỗi unit có một bài test nhỏ để kiểm tra trình độ của người học.

Phần chú giải ở cuối sách tổng hợp các từ vựng xuất hiện trong các unit.

Cách sử dụng

Nếu người học đã có kiến thức nền tổng quát tốt về ngữ pháp, và sử dụng cuốn sách với mục đích ôn tập các phần mình còn chưa vững, người học không nhất thiết phải theo thứ tự trong sách, mà có thể chọn bất kỳ unit nào người học mong muốn hoặc hứng thú.

Người học cần làm phần “stop & check” để kiểm tra kiến thức hiện tại trước khi bắt đầu học phần lý thuyết.

Người học cần đọc kỹ phần lý thuyết và ví dụ để hiểu rõ hơn về bài học. Tác giả khuyến khích người học nên dành khoảng 15-20 phút để đọc kĩ lưỡng và cố gắng nhớ những điểm chính, lưu ý.

Sau khi đọc kỹ phần lí thuyết, người học nên làm bài tập để củng cố thêm về kiến thức vừa được tiếp thu.

Đánh giá

Điểm mạnh

Use of English – First Certificate skills – Mark Harrison là một cuốn sách tổng hợp khá đầy đủ về ngữ pháp. Hầu như các chủ điểm ngữ pháp trong tiếng Anh đều được cung cấp.

Bài tập đa dạng thể loại và theo sát form đề FCE. Người dùng có thể làm quen được với format của đề thi.

Một điểm sáng của cuốn sách là phần “Stop & check”. Bằng việc tự kiểm tra trước khi vào bài học, người học có thể tự kiểm tra được lượng kiến thức hiện tại và đôi chút hình thành ý niệm về chủ điểm ngữ pháp đó.

Các ví dụ đưa ra trong phần lý thuyết khá đơn giản, dễ hiểu và trực quan, giúp người đọc nắm kỹ hơn về mặt lý thuyết. Đa phần các ví dụ đều được lấy từ ngữ cảnh đời thường nên gần gũi với người đọc.

Phần chú giải rất chi tiết và kĩ lưỡng. Phần chú giải được chia ra theo từng unit và chia thành hai cột, một cột là các từ vựng quan trọng xuất hiện trong unit, cột còn lại là diễn giải nghĩa một cách ngắn gọn nhất. Người dùng có thể sử dụng tách riêng phần chú giải này để tự ôn tập từ vựng sau khi học xong.

Điểm yếu

Lượng kiến thức trải dài và rất nhiều cho nên khối lượng bài tập cho mỗi lượng kiến thức chỉ có một bài (tầm 10 – 15 câu) nên người học có thể chưa được trải nghiệm đầy đủ và chuyên sâu về một mặt ngữ pháp nào đó.

Tổng kết

Use of English – First Certificate skills – Mark Harrison là một cuốn sách học về ngữ pháp và từ vựng ở mức độ trung cấp – theo chuẩn cấp độ B2 trong thang ngôn ngữ 6 bậc châu Âu (CEFR). Các kiến thức trong cuốn sách được truyền tải rõ ràng, bao quát và dễ hiểu. Tuy vẫn còn một số nhược điểm nhỏ như khối lượng bài tập khá nhiều nhưng chưa thực sự chuyên sâu, cuốn sách này vẫn có thể là một lựa chọn đáng để cân nhắc cho người học với nhu cầu học và ôn tập ngữ pháp và từ vựng ở trình độ trung cấp.

B2 Ncs Nên Thi Theo Định Dạng B2 Sđh Hay Vstep?

Trong bài viết này, Anh ngữ VIVIAN sẽ giúp các bạn giải đáp thắc mắc về việc lựa chọn kỳ thi B2 nào đối với NCS để khả năng thi đạt dễ dàng nhất.

Đến tháng 08/2023, các trường được Bộ cấp phép chỉ tổ chức kỳ thi B2 theo định dạng Vstep, không tổ chức B2 định dạng NCS nữa.

Định dạng bài thi Vstep và thang điểm

Đọc: 60 phút = 4 bài đọc = 40 câu hỏi

Toàn bộ là các bài đọc hiểu trắc nghiệm 4 đáp án ABCD.

Nghe: khoảng 33 phút + 7 phút chuyển đáp án sang phiếu trả lời

Toàn bộ là dạng trắc nghiệm với nhiều dạng bài nghe khác nhau: thông báo hướng dẫn, nghe hội thoại 2 người nói và nghe độc thoại 1 người nói kiểu bài giảng, bài thuyết trình.

Viết: 60 phút = 2 bài viết

Thí sinh viết một bài viết thư có độ dài 120 từ và một bài viết luận 250 từ.

Nói: 12 phút = phần

Thang điểm bài thi Vstep

Từng kỹ năng được chấm trên thang điểm 10 và điểm trung bình cộng của 4 kỹ năng được dùng để quy đổi trình độ. Điểm từ 6.0-8.0 tương đương trình độ B2. Đối với kỹ năng Nghe và Đọc, điểm số được tính là số câu đúng/ số câu bài thi *10. Nói và Viết chấm theo các tiêu chí.

Để tham khảo đề thi mẫu Vstep sample , bạn tham khảo trong đường link phía trước.

Đề thi tiếng Anh B2 NCS và thang điểm

Đề thi gồm 4 bài, tổng thời gian 235 phút.

Bài 1: Đọc và Sử dụng ngôn ngữ (4 bài = 90 phút, Điểm: 30 điểm/ 100 điểm)

Ngoài bài đọc hiểu trắc nghiệm ABCD giống như bài thi Vstep, đề thi tiếng Anh B2 sđh còn có bài đọc lắp ghép lại những câu/ đoạn bị xáo trộn đúng trật tự hoặc logic và một bài kiểm tra ngữ pháp bao gồm 15 câu trắc nghiệm từ vựng ngữ pháp.

Khá giống bài thi tiếng Anh Vstep vì đều phải viết thư và viết một bài luận. Có thêm một bài điền từ vào 10 chỗ trống trong một đoạn văn với 15 từ cho sẵn. Có thể thi một dạng khác nữa dựng 10 câu viết theo tình huống, ví dụ viết một lá thư dựa vào từ/ cụm từ cho sẵn.

Có hai bài thi nghe trắc nghiệm hoặc chọn đúng sai và một bài nghe điền từ vào chỗ trống.

Thang điểm bài thi B2 sđh

Bài thi B2 sđh dàng cho NCS được tính trên thang điểm 100 là tổng điểm của 4 kỹ năng. Thí sinh đạt bài thi và được cấp chứng chỉ B2 nếu điểm được 50/100 và kỹ năng Nói và Nghe được tối thiểu 6/20 điểm.

So sánh bài thi tiếng Anh B2 sau đại học và B2 Vstep

Nhìn chung, về định dạng bài thi, hai bài thi này nhìn chung khá giống nhau. Bài thi B2 sđh có phần thi ngữ pháp, đọc điền từ vào chỗ trống và nghe điền từ vào chỗ trống khác với bài thi Vstep.

Về điểm, bài thi Vstep 6/10 và B2 sđh 50/100.

Về độ khó bài thi, Vstep khó hơn bài thi B2 sau đại học một chút.

Kết luận: B2 NCS nên tham gia kỳ thi B2 sđh thì bài thi dễ hơn một chút so với kỳ thi Vstep, trong khi điểm Đạt thấp hơn (50% bài thi trong khi Vstep cần 60% bài thi). Tuy nhiên, lưu ý đối với kỹ năng Nghe và Nói của B2 sđh để được tối thiểu 6 điểm/20 mới không bị liệt.

Ôn và thi lấy chứng chỉ tiếng Anh B2 dành cho Nghiên cứu sinh

Số lượng B2 NCS rất ít nên hầu như không có đơn vị nào tổ chức lớp ôn tập dành riêng cho B2 NCS. Tuy nhiên, do rất giống bài thi Vstep đặc biệt với kỹ năng Nói và Viết nên B2 NCS có thể theo học lớp luyện thi Vstep, đồng thời bổ trợ thêm kiến thức còn thiếu trên trang web tienganhb1.com.

Học viên không có thời gian ôn luyện trên lớp có thể lựa chọn học trực tuyến, kết hợp học 2 khóa Vstep Online và khóa B1, B2 khung châu Âu trên trang web. Chat với tư vấn viên ở góc phải màn hình để biết thêm thông tin.

Học viên có thể đăng ký dự thi chứng chỉ B2 sđh tại một số đơn vị sau:

1. Trường ĐHNN – ĐHQGHN chỉ tổ chức thi B2 NCS cho học viên theo học tại trường. Thí sinh tự do phải thi theo Vstep.

2. ĐH Hà Nội

B2 NCS nên chọn thi B2 sđh thay vì dạng thức 3 bậc.

3. ĐH Huế

Vì thế, Aland IELTS khuyên các bạn nên sử dụng các bộ tra từ điển như Cambridge dictionary, thefreedictionary, longman, oxford và merriam-webster… để tra từ cũng như học được cách sử dụng từ cùng cấu trúc ngữ pháp trong văn cảnh cụ thể.

Học xong lý thuyết nên áp dụng ngay vào phần bài tập và review đi kèm sau mỗi topic. Có như vậy, bạn mới hiểu sâu và nhớ lâu hơn kiến thức của mình.

Cuối cùng, sau khi hoàn thành bài tập, bạn nên dành thời gian để kiểm tra những lỗi sai và rút ra kinh nghiệm để không mắc phải những lỗi này nữa.
